Newport Hoosier State
Thursday, September 21, 1876

On last Monday afternoon, John Holtz, an old citizen of Eugene, committed suicide by hanging himself. He suspended a rope from a beam in his barn, made a noose, stuck his head through and swung into eternity. He had been dead for 3 hours when found. On the floor where he committed the tragic act, was a pint flask, half full of bad whiskey. He was a man of dissipated habits, and had been spreeing for several days. He was about 55 years of age, and had been a resident of Eugene for many years. He leaves a wife, and a large family of children who are grown to maturity and married.
